Guidance on Cloud Service Cryptography (ITSP.50.106)
"Cloud computing has the potential to provide your organization with flexible, on-demand, scalable, and self-service information technology (IT) provisioning. To deliver this potential, it is imperative that we address the security and privacy dimensions of cloud computing. Cryptography is one of the main pillars enabling security and privacy in cloud computing.
It plays an essential role in enabling cloud services such as authentication, secure access to cloud workloads, secure data storage, and secure data exchange.
The objective of this security guidance document is to help your organization understand the cryptographic considerations for cloud computing. This document, and its appendices, reviews cryptographic concepts and use cases for cloud computing, provides guidance for key management, and provides cryptographic guidance for database workloads and endpoint devices."
